Christian Science teaches us how to heal spiritually. Some key elements of healing and spirituality are shared on this page and linking pages.

If you feel you need help there are many Christian Scientists who work as spiritual healers or Christian Science Practitioners and who are available in time of need 24/7. For a list of practitioners see the Christian Science Journal. You can usually contact them by phone or email.

The Bible

The Bible has been a a source of spirituality for many and was studied by Mary Baker Eddy as she questioned how to live her life and how to heal reliably. Through this study and much prayer she gained the understanding of man’s relationship with God and how spiritual healing can be achieved. Mrs Eddy stated “that as adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal life”. To learn more about the Bible click here.

Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures

The author of this book, Mary Baker Eddy, intended it to be a sourcebook on practical spirituality for literally anyone. Science and Health outlines universal spiritual laws that when understood and acted upon bring comfort and healing. First published in 1875, it continues as a best seller and as an enduring book on spirituality and healing.

The last 100 pages of Science and Health contain accounts of healings brought about by reading this book.

Basic ideas include

  • God is divine Love, Father-Mother, supreme
  • The true nature of each individual as a child of God is spiritual

Mary Baker Eddy

Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910),is the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. She is also widely recognised beyond the church she founded as a remarkable author, teacher and religious figure.

Born in Bow, New Hampshire, she grew up in a devout Congregational family, and always had a great love of God and the Bible. In 1866, she was healed of a severe injury as she read the account of one of Jesus’ healings in the New Testament. This led her to a deep study of the Bible to discover how the Master’s healings and her own remarkable recovery had occurred.

Students began to gather around her as she demonstrated through further healings the truth that was unfolding to her. These truths are detailed in her major work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. She later established the Church of Christ, Scientist, - now in 130 countries and founded its various periodicals and activities.
